Dep Moines, Nov. 14.—There was som/e disappointment in Des Moines over the fact that none of the army officers who had been invited to the army post dedication came save Gen eral! John C- Bates and members of his staff from Omaha, who partici pated in the parade, first in automo biles through the city and then in carriages to the site of the army post a£ Fort Des Moines. The feature of the day was a great barbecue at the post, participated in several hundred Des Moines people ('and visitors, where roast ox and bread •were served to them free. Congress man Hull was present, having come from Washington especially to attend the dedication, inasmuch as he has been more interested in the building of the post than any other. General I BateB was greatly pleased with the post and stated that he would send $$ two companies of colored infantry here to assist in guarding it until the arrival of the Eleventh cavalry, which f'* will be the first to regularly occupy m' the buildings. Mr. Mth'i Portrait of Dickens. It was early in the fifties that John Forster asked me to paint a portrait of Dickens for him. I gladly consented and was about to propose a day for the fls»* sitting when Forster stopped me by mentioning what he called a most unfortunate propensity which Dickens had developed—he was actually grow ing a mustache! 'Tls just a fancy of the moment," said Forster, "and we must wait till the craze has passed away." A very few months convinced us that the mustache, so far from pass ing away, was rapidly growing into what threatened to be a formidable beard, so, unless one-half of the face was to be lost to us, no more time should be lost. My Idea was to paint him in his working clothes, but when I found that he always wore a light bright blue silk coat with big red cuffs every morning when he took pen in hand I remonstrated so successfully that after a little hesitation he con sented to wear the black jacket in which he now appears at South Ken sington.—W. P. Frith, R. A., in King, His Navy and Army. Andnbou and Hid Hair. Audubon, the great naturalist, early in his career wore his hair very long. He wrote in his diary one day: "I wear my hair as long as usual. I be lieve it does as much for me as my paintings." However, in 1827 his friends succeeded in persuading him to get his hair cut according to the pre vailing fashion. On March 19 of that year he wrote in his diary: "This day my hair sacrificed and the will of God usurped by the wishes of man. As the barber clipped my locks rapidly It re minded me of the horrible times of the French revolution when the same operation was performed upon all the victims murdered by the guillotine. My heart sank low." Further to express his grief the margin of the page on which this entry was made he painted black about three-quarters of an inch deep all around. Eaglea In the Tennessee Mountains. There are many eagles in the Ten nessee mountains, and consequently there are many mountaineers who are expert catchers of the young eagles. These reap rich rewards in return for their perilous risks and adventures, and some of them receive as much as $2,000 for a single year's catch. The keen eyed hunters watch the nests un til the young are hatched and then, patiently waiting for the mother bird to leave in search for food, make short work of the capture, while the mother bird is invariably shot to death upon her return to the nest and in her fren zied search for her young. Bolder hunters than these make attacks at night, while the less experienced use snares and nets, a method, however. In a majority of cases, unsuccessful. Cast Iron. By altering the rate of cooling the strength of i«en can be greatly changed, and the test bars are often run sepa rately from the casting and cooled quicker, so that they usually have greater strength, sometimes more than twice as much. Separately cast test bars are always stronger than those cast on the castings itself, and of the latter the one nearest the heaviest part of the casting is always the weakest. The remedy, as above indicated, is simple when the false witness has once been pointed out. An Apt Headline. An English weekly, speaking of head lines, tells of an excellent one which appeared over a story of the Pigott forgery. In that case one of the de vices by which Sir Charles Russell brought the unfortunate forger to bay was by getting him to write the word "hesitancy." In the forged letter the word was misspelled "hesitency." The day the flight of Pigott was announced an editor suggested the headline, "The Man Who 'Ilesitetes' Is Lost," and it was so excellent that It was immedi ately put in type. Smell and Taste. The sense of smell is most nearly al lied to that of taste. Hearing and see ing depend upon nerve responses to vibrations in the air and in the ether.

Latter is Postmaster at Hastings and Ex-Mayor of the City—Accused Men Insist It is Only a Political Quarrel and Result of Spite. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 17.—The United States grand jury last night returned true bills against United States Sen ator Charles H. Dietrich and Post master Jacob Fisher of Hastings, Neb., charging them with bribery and con spiracy. The senator is charged with accepting a bribe from Fisher in consideration of which the latter was recommended for the postmaster ship of Hastings. This indictment is said to be the first ever returned against a United States senator on charges of this na ture, and caused intense excitement in government official circles in Oma ha and adjoining towns when it be came public. Just what action will be taken, if any, to apprehend Senator Dietrich could not be learned. The last witness called before the grand jury was William Dutton, a hardware merchant of Hastings. Ac cording to Dutton's testimony he act ed as intermediary in all the alleged transactions between the indicted men, and after hearing his evidence the grand jury excused the remaining witnesses, who had not testified, and at once prepared its report to Judge Munger. The jury is composed of twenty members, nineteen of whom are said to have voted for the indict ment and one against. The members come from all parts of the state, no two of them being a resident of the same town, and are mostly prominent business and professional men. Four other cases, said to be of a sim ilar nature, are being investigated by the grand jury, and a report on all or part of them is expected very soon. All are cases in which postoffices and postmasters are concerned. Fisher Makes a Statement. Postmaster Fisher and his deputy, Edward Francis, both of whom were subpoenaed as witnesses, were seen at their hotel in Omaha last night, and Mr. Fisher made this statement: "This is the first I knew of indict ments being returned against Senator Dietrich and myself. I can say, how ever. that they are the result of po litical persecution, and that I have been treated unfairly in the matter. I have been in Omaha ten days, expect ing to appear before the grand jury as a witness. Not being called to tes tify I made application both to the dis trict judge and to Foreman White to be permitted to make a statement to the grand jury. I was unable to se cure a hearing, however, and was dis missed with the assurance that I would not be called as a witness. There is really nothing in the charges and my friends will support me in my defense. If witnesses had been per mitted to have been cross-examined the result would have been quite dif ferent and no indictment would have followed. I have been in Hastings twenty-six years as a business man and do not anticipate any serious con sequences as the result of the report of the grand jury. Men have pushed this matter who were turned down for reappointment, and have trumped up charges to 'get even.'" Washington, Nov. 17.—Senator Diet rich and Editor Rosewater of the Omaha Bee have arrived in this city and all inquirers as to the indictment of the senator were referred to Mr. Rosewater. They declared the indict ments were the result of a political quarrel. Mr. Rosewater said Mr. Dietrich had a good defense, and add ed he and the senator had come to Washington at this time to bring about the removal of District Attorney Summers. He said they had already been to the white house on this mis sion. Mr. Rosewater declared that District Attorney Summers had pushed the charges against Senator Dietrich for the reason that they were politically antagonistic. BRIGHAM TALKS TO FARMERS. Urges Firm Stand Against Organized Labor and Capital. Rochester, N. Y., Nov. 17.—Assist ant Secretary of Agriculture J. P. Brigham addressed the National Grange, of which he was master for nine years. He urged the farmers to take a firm stand against the "tyranny of organized labor and organized cap ital." Both, he said, were threatening problems, which the agricultural class alone could solve. His words were received with great enthusiasm. Two important resolutions were in troduced. One from Oregon called for an investigation of the charges that the railroads are charging the govern ment more than they charge the ex press companies for carrying packages. The other demanded a compensation for rural mail route carriers which would equal that received by city mall carriers. Both resolutions were re ferred to the legislative committee. An important resolution was intro duced in relation to the scarcity of farm labor, asking Secretary of Agri culture Wilson what can be done to induce tho immigration into the United States of competent farm la borers from foreign countries. Requisition for Zelgler. Jefferson City, Mo., Nov. 17.—Gov ernor Dockery issued a requisition on Governor Odell of New York for the return of William Ziegler, the baking powder magnate, to Jefferson City, to answer to the indictment found against him by the Cole county grand jury on the charge of attempted brib ery in connection with the alum bill legislation in 1901. ^feii»if4f^Vi^!^^^''iJI,',MM -^'i V»/ ,. *V %Ti.'fSlHf?--'/ 4 1 AatlmoBj, That terrible poison, antimony, known most familiarly In the compound called tartar emetic, has a very interesting history. It was introduced into medi cine some centuries ago by Paracel sus. Its name signifies that it Is "against monks," as some on whom it was tried displayed the now familiar symptoms. Its use in modern medicine has been reduced to the vanishing point with other depressing measures, such as bleeding. In the table which ar ranges the elements In series and shows their connections—so that all are probably modifications of one universal substance—there is a sequence, nitro gen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, bis muth. Sir Lauder Brunton has shown that these possess many common prop erties in their action upon man and that these properties vary In relation to the place of each in the scale. In the days before chloroform antimony and tobacco were used to produce the partial unconsciousness which attends their action. How to Warm Gold Plates. Various departments of "household hints" have unaccountably neglected to tell how solid gold plates may be warmed for the meat courses at din ner. This may be done in the right or the wrong way. The right way is ex emplified at Castle Kilkenny. This is one of the oldest inhabited dwellings in the world, some of the rooms being 800 years old. Among its ancient treas ures Is a service of gold plate. Besides the ordinary plate service, Castle Kilkenny has the whole series of gold cups used at coronation ban quets down to the time of George IV. The gold of the service plates is almost without alloy, consequently very soft and easily marred. Hence the plates are warmed and presumably also washed after use by being dipped into hot water held by a paU- of tongs whose tips have been muffled In cham ois leather. Tickling the Debtors. John Barrett was only twenty-seven years old when President Cleveland appointed him minister to Slam. The first important task which confronted the youthful envoy was to jiress a claim against the Siamese government for $1,000,000. Experienced ambassa dors warned him against using threats in obtaining the money. "Be cunning avoid arrogance," they said. "That Is," responded Mr. Barrett, you favor tickling with a straw to pricking with a bayonet." The statesmen nodded assent. When the young minister had finally succeeded in collecting the claim the ambassadors asked In astonishment, "How did you accomplish it?" "By tickling," explained Barrett. "I had to tickle them almost to death, though, before they agreed to pay it." Coffee For the Inebriate. A traveler has made the observation that coffee drinking people are very seldom given to drunkenness. In Bra zil, for Instance, where coffee is grown extensively and all the inhabitants drink it many times a day, intoxication Is rarely seen. The effect Is not only noticeable among the natives, but the foreigner who settles there, though possessed of ever such a passion for strong drink, gradually loses his liking for alcohol as he acquires the coffee drinking habit of the Brazilian. Foand a Parallel. An English country vicar discovered not long ago one of his male servants was 'bit of stealing his potatoes. oued the fact to his curate unu 1 advice. "Well," replied the curate, "of course you must remember what the Bible says, 'If any man take away thy coat let him have thy cloak also.'" "I see," mused the vicar. "Well, in this case, as the man takes my pota toes I'd better give him the sack!" Animal* In Alcohol. M. Grobaut, professor of physiology in Paris, in describing the effect of al cohol upon animals says that the suc cessive stages of intoxication through which they pass are gayety, sadness, solemnity and a supreme intoxication which ends in death, llabbits are very curious when under the influence of liquor, and a drunken kangaroo is bru tally aggressive. AvertlnK the Evil. Mildred (very superstitious) Oh, dear, 1 would never have accepted you, Jack, if I had remembered it was Fri day evening! Jack—There's only one way to avert the evil omen, darling. We must very carefully kiss each other seven times at least every seven minutes during tho first seventy minutes of our en gagement. Jenkinn W«« Ignored. William Pitt's last words are said to have been, "My country, oh, how I love my country!" Pitt's butler afterward said that the statesman's dying words were, "I hope the country will do some thing for Jenkins." The butler was Jenkins, but nobody accepted his testi mony and the country certainly did nothing for Jenkins. Not an Authority. There are some persons who can't take a joke, but Fogg Is not one of them. One of the boys, acquainted with Fogg's frequeni changes of abode, ask ed him which he thought was the cheaper, to move or to pay rent. "I can't tell you, my dear boy," re plied Fogg. "I have always moved." Economical. Friend (to amateur artist)—I suppose you'll give up painting when you mar ry? Amateur—Oh, no!

Admiral Glass Drinks Its Health While Isthmian Band Plays Star Speigled Banner—Toast Canal and President Roosevelt. Panama, Nov. 18.—The United States flagship Ma- blehead hoisted the flag of the Republic of Panama and sa luted it with twenty-one guns. The Tres .tovlembre, a gunboat of Pana ma, displaying the American flag an swered the salute. The shore bat teries also fired a salute of twenty one guns, which the Marblehead an swered. Admiral Glass. Consul Gudger and Commander Phelps officially called on the junta. A military band played the "Star Spangled Banner" on the Amer icans' arrival at the palace, and on their departure from that building. They were received by the members of the junta. Admiral Glass said he was glad to officially call upon the government of the republic of Pan ama. It had been a great pleasure for him to salute the flag of the new re public, for whose prosperity and great ness he expressed the best wishes. Senor Arango, a member ef the Junta, answered, saying that in the name of the junta and of the people of Pan ama he expressed sincere pleasure at the presence of the gallant fleet in Panama bay representing the noble people and government of the United States, "to whom the isthmus is deep ly grateful for the hand of fellowship so generously and promptly extended to them by its great president." Mr. Gudger proposed a toast to a new Panama canal treaty, which was answered by General Varon, who toasted President Roosevelt and the United States army with great cordi ality. The people of Panama are happy over the official recognition of the flag and the event is being celebrated en thusiastically. REVOLUTION IS HINTED AT. Minister Beaupre Cables of Conditions at Bogota. Washington, Nov. 1(5.—A revolution in Colombia is not impossible, accord ing to a dispatch received at the state department from United States Min ister Beaupre at Bogota. He described the feeling in tho capital city as pan icky. The minister has delivered to the Colombian government his instruc tions sent him by the state depart ment, advising him that the United States has entered into relations with the government at Panama and com mending to both governments of Co lombia and Panama the "peaceful and equitable settlement of all questions at issue between them." Mr. Bunau-Varilla, the minister from Panama, continued his efforts to se cure recognition of the new govern ment by the European nations. The French government is anxious that the republic of Panama shall guarantee to the Panama Canal company and the French citizens Interested therein all the rights, privileges, etc., now held by them. This guarantee is desired before any steps looking to the recog nition by France is given, and M. Va rilla cabled his government for au thority to make such representations. He received a long cablegram from Panama expressing thanks to the gov ernment of the United States for its courtesy in offering the privileges of United States warships to General Reyes on his arrival at the isthmus of Panama should be desire to go aboard one. The cablegram says the greatest enthusiasm exists throughout the re public of Panama over the reception given to its minister here and to the recognition of the new republic. In official circles here the opinion is expressed that the commission con sisting of Generals Reyes, Holguin and Ospina, which, according to the dispatches from Bogota have started on a peace mission to Panama, are embarked on a hopeless task. It is now too late, it is said, for the hope of anything to be accomplished. It is felt here that the Panama people will not treat with them, as it is not likely that the isthmians will care to become again a part of the Colombian govern ment. The state department received information that the president's yacht, the Mayflower, had arrived at Colon with Admiral John G. Walker, the president of the isthmian canal com mission. who is to make an investiga tion of affairs on the isthmus and re port to the president, and Rear Ad miral Coghlan, who is to assume com mand of the American fleet on the At lantic side of the isthmus. 6AN DOMINGO SCENE OF BATTLE. Insurgents Still Bombarding City and Situation is Serious. San Domingo, Nov. 18—The political situation here is serious. The insurg ents are bombarding the city. Generals Figuero and Sanchez are refugees in the foreign legations. The city Is completely invested by 4,000 men un der Pickardo and four other generals. A general attack is expected within the next few days. General Gil re fuses to capitulate and it is believed that the fighting will be severe. The situation is desperate and fighting on the streets is likely to occur at any moment. The cruiser Baltimore has been compelled to leave to re-coal. Minister Powell is endeavoring to pro tect American interests with the lim ited means at his disposal. A German naval vessel is ready to land troops at a moment's notice. The insurgents endeavored to have Minister Powell recognize them, but this the minister refused to do. ^*"w" The Nose. Use the nose to breathe through and not the mouth. In winter and spring particularly must this care be taken. If the mouth is kept open large drafts of cold air rush directly in upon the lungs, chilling the body almost In stantly. If the mouth Is kept shut the air can reach the lungs only by the circuit of the nose and head, and it be comes warmed before reaching the lungs. It is asserted that the reason the American nose is becoming more and more narrow is owing to the repre hensive habit of breathing through the mouth rather than following the inten tion of nature. Russians as Ltn&aists. Every educated Russian knows three languages besides his own and many of thorn four. Knowledge of the Eng lish, French and German languages is considered necessary to culture. A fam ily having small children employs two to four governesses, from whom the children learn foreign tongues before tliey are taught the more difficult Rus sian. This command of language makes possible the fact that Russians have a better knowledge of the world's affairs than any other people. The Best Remedy For Croup. [From Atchison, Kan., Daily Globe.] This is the season when the woman who knows the best remedies for croup is in demand in every neighborhood. One of the most terrible things in the world is to be awakened in the mid dle of the night by a whoop from one of the children. The croup remedies are almost as sure to be lost, in case of croup, as a revolver is sure to be lost in case of burglars. There used to be an old-fashioned remedy for croup, known as hive syrup and tola, but some modern mothers say that Chamberlain's C'ough Remedy is bet ter, and does not cost so much. It causes the patient to "throw up the phlegm" quicker, and gives relief In a shorter time. Give this remedy as soon as the croupy cough appears and it will prevent the attack. It never fails and is pleasant and safe to take. For sale by Nick Doffing & Co., Exira, Iowa. IOWA'S GREATEST DAILY NEWS PAPER FOR ONLY $2.00 FOR A YEAR.
